Faculty Positions in Research Methods and Data Analytics in Digital Health – Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth
The Department of Biomedical Data Science at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth (Geisel) seeks two outstanding individuals to join our faculty within the Center for Technology and Behavioral Health (CTBH). CTBH is an interdisciplinary research group whose mission is to inform the optimal development, scientific evaluation, and sustainable implementation of digital therapeutics for behavioral health. CTBH is a designated “Center of Excellence” by the US National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The successful candidates will be pursuing a vigorous research program focused on the use of novel methodologies and/or data analytics in digital health as applied to behavioral health. This may include research in adaptive and/or personalized digital therapeutic interventions for health behavior change and/or development/refinement/application of analytic models for densely sampled intensive, longitudinal digital health data (including data captured via mobile devices and sensing technologies).
Research focused on clinical effectiveness and/or implementation of digital health behavior-change interventions will also be considered. Research designed to understand mechanisms of behavior change with digital health interventions is also of interest, as are interventions focusing on addictive behaviors and/or cancer-causing behaviors.
Successful individuals will be provided a tenure-track faculty appointment in the Department of Biomedical Data Science at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College commensurate with experience. Secondary appointments in other Geisel departments may be available. Candidates who currently hold or have experience commensurate with the rank of Assistant Professor are preferred.
Applicants for all positions must have earned a PhD and/or MD (or equivalent), have formal advanced training in the fields described above, and should have a successful track record of peer-reviewed publications, and a history of extramural funding. Expectations for teaching and mentoring are a critical part of this role, and individuals will be provided with such opportunities through membership in relevant PhD graduate programs (e.g., The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice; Program in Quantitative Biomedical Sciences; Molecular and Cellular Biology). Training grants in relevant areas (e.g., Science of Co-occurring Disorders; the Burroughs Welcome training fund for Unifying Population and Laboratory-based Sciences) are available to support trainees in areas relevant to successful candidates.
